I am a disabled veteran of the Army and tried to play guitar over in Germany before the internet was invented and didn't have much luck finding instructional material. Needless to say I gave up on it for quite a few years.
Now I just started to learn the bass as our church only has a piano player and once in a while a bass player will be there.
I have an Epiphone SG EB-3 that I picked up from a pawn shop and it was in very rough shape. I have cleaned it, put new strings on it, and replaced a bunch of rusty screw headed screws. Good thing is the pickups work ok.
Even the strap buttons mounting screw holes were worn and I had to drill them out and glue in oak dowls so I could drill new ones.
All I have left now is to find the allen screws that go in the worm shaft of the tuners. Any help would be appreciated.
